Ass donny says car gets dialed with only minor changes

The only thing that I miss from the serpent is the servo mount, Serpent's is really great despite removing some flex in the front

Cheers
Thank you for sharing Jimjav
Now I consider it very very hard to change to BD7

I wonder if I should buy now or wait for 2015 edition though
Will 2015 edition has a lot of changes?
Anybody has any idea?

Does anyone know if the spurholder/pulley are interchangeable between the 13 and the 14 version?

Has any one installed a graphite battery strap to hold the battery in place (along with battery holders, of corse). I like the idea of a mechanical system instead of tape.

I am getting a parts order ready and I have most of the spares in my cart and ready to go, but what is the recomendation for ball stud washers(part numbers Please)? I saw shims on amain that range from .5 to 3mm, is that what should be used? or do ball stud washers from AE fit the yoke ball studs?

Looking at the pics off the Super-precision Bearing it doesn't look the dcj bearings is in the set. But I don't know what the 2 small size bearing fit.

Shims i range form 0,5 to 1 mm is good to have since most setup normaly uses these two types off shimes. With that being said the all M3 shimes should fit on Yokomo ball stud.
